Semantics, unless you're arguing that Feds should finally get another class of vessels?

The Guramaba is everything the Fleet Escort is +more. No reason there can't be a +1 C store version of the Fleet Escort.

Yeah, so basically everything the Fleet Escort is but better.

That's what you get when you pay Cpoints. Fine, now there can be a +1 FE for the store as well.

Works for me.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say here.

Guramba can mount DCs and DHCs, which are the premier damage dealing weapons for ships in this class.

Surely not just a simple as its not as good as..... Cuase frankly its a great escort.
Just not as good as the Guramba.

I should know, because I have both.
